Taken in my backyard. Not much editing, contrast auto fix, cropped, border, resize, save for web. I wasn't planning on entering this challenge because I am not very good yet, but I took these yesterday and some of them just happened to fit the bokeh challenge, or at least I hope it does. Not sure how it will do, but I like it.

Cute shot; the crop feels very restrictive, especially above his head.

Try using the shade white balance setting to make it less blue, or fix the WB in PP. The bokeh is also not very significant in this image. Probably a limitation of your camera (a P&S?), but getting the background further from the subject will help.

the composition of the child is fun and the facial expression creates a lot of charm; however, the spraying water in front of him can be distracting.

I like the photo...but it looks like he was told to stand there. It seems very forced instead of natural.

Nice try, great subject. the backround is too visable, not out of focus enough.
